UK’s best price and quality

Light. Robust. Unputdownable. Paperback books, bound to last.

Easy to pick up. Hard to put down. Paperback books are made to be read. But they’re also often tossed into suitcases, shoved into pockets, and enjoyed on trains, planes, and sunloungers. It’s important that they maintain their integrity, so that their stories can be told.

Choose from our range of binding options (perfect bound or stapled), paper types and weights, and trim sizes to make sure your epic sci-fi tale or windswept romance novel stays in one piece.

Brilliant that you can see costs up front and also have paper samples sent out free of charge. Such a simple, practical and easy to use website. And I am beyond happy with how the products themselves turned out. I highly highly recommend Mixam.

Mixam’s online ordering system simplifies the process. The customer service staff is happy to help if you have any issues or questions. And the books are the perfect combo of both affordable and very high quality.

Excellent service. First time I have used a printing company and I chose well with Mixam. They have a cool website with plenty of printing information to help you get started. I did have a small issue after my first test print run, but was able to correct this and the staff at Mixam were very generous and gave me a free second shot at a re-print. Thankyou Mixam.

Very good service and extremely reasonable. Some of the packing left a little bit to be desired, package was slightly delayed and a couple of zines were scuffed, but am overall very happy, especially given how much cheaper they are. Recommended

I am very impressed with the quality products they produce! All pages were in correct order and the paper material is better than I could of asked for! I had ordered 65 yearbooks for our schools and had them in less than 2 weeks! Very pleased and would use them again in a heart beat

Quick, easy to use, responsive with enquiries and general questions. The system for uploading work and getting the preview is incredibly simple to use - the only thing that I would have liked to be a little clearer was how to process a test print as this was relatively expensive when compared to the price of the actual order. That aside, I've been massively impressed with my experience with Mixam so far and would recommend them to anyone who is looking to explore digital POD

Ordered some proof prints nearly two weeks ago and still not arrived, however they are doing a replacement set. This has moved my deadline by at least two weeks. Will be down to post rather than Mixam. Been very helpful when contacted
Info for file setup

Paperback book Print File Setup

How to upload your files
You can upload your files in a way that suits you - as single pages or spreads, individual files for each page, or as a single combined file.
Important - your cover
Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.
Bleed
We ask for a 3mm bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Binding
The binding options available for paperback books are perfect bound or stapled. For books with fewer than 25 pages, we recommend printing as a booklet.
Please note:
These available binding options are entirely dependent upon the number of pages and paper weight selected for your order. This is because there comes a point where the combined paper thickness is too much to effectively staple or stitch together, and will instead need to be held together by adhesive (otherwise known as ‘perfect binding’).

The opposite is true if there are too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our dynamic ordering system is smart enough to know when a limit has been reached, and will automatically switch to the required binding option.

Spine (for Perfect Binding)
If you choose perfect binding you have the option to upload the spine as a separate print file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.
The spine will also need a 3mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Completing your order
Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
